MUSC enables virtual visits with Epic’s telehealth integrated with Vidyo


Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) has simplified access to high quality remote consultations between clinicians and patients.

It deployed Epic’s telehealth and virtual care workflows integrated with Vidyo’s real-time video communication platform.

MUSC leverages Epic’s integration of Vidyo into Epic HyperspaceTM and MyChartTMweb and mobile applications.

South Carolina’s large rural population and growing physician deficits have driven demand for improved access to care via telehealth practices.

Virtual visits are the latest addition to MUSC’s telehealth portfolio that includes telestroke, tele-ICU, school based telehealth, medical home co-management, maternal fetal telemedicine, telemental health and other applications.

James T. McElligott, Medical Director for Telehealth at MUSC, said: “Vidyo allows for our providers to access care from a wide variety of locations and the level of integration with our Epic system on mobile and desktop applications is necessary to make workflows seamless across the continuum of care.”
